Intimations

Haiku of wonder

Transfiguration
intimations of glory;
he must be the one.

Great stories are told
to further prove the greatness
of one we call Christ.

The stage is prepared:
for a sacred drama, here,
upon a mountain.

Lots of heavy stuff
happens high up in mountains;
just ask Elijah.

Elijah is there,
along with Moses, talking
with Jesus, shining.

Prophet, lawmaker,
they converse with one who will
surpass both of them.

The cloud voice echoes:
this is my Son, the chosen,
listen to his voice.

His bewildered friends
have no idea what it means,
or who they follow.

The story is told
across two millennia;
and still we wonder.
